altogether Beautiful...

That is what my Jesus is to me. His voice is sweet, and His form is lovely. The most amazing, incomprehensible thing, though, is that I am altogether Beautiful to Him.

Name:

I am a daughter of the King. I am a friend of sinners. I am confident that nothing shall separate me from the love of God. I am seeking a heart after God's own heart. I am righteous in Jesus Christ, apart from the works of the law. I am not ashamed of the Gospel.

So very happy


This is my wonderful family- all of us apparently going in for kisses.

I've noticed lately that I am very happy. I suddenly realized, while talking with a friend, that I Finally have a job that I am absolutely Passionate about. I read books and articles to increase my knowledge, I test new theories and I practice new habits~ all related to my job and all because of the passion I have for it, not out of obligation. I don't get paid and I'm on the job or on call 24/7 but the benefits package is unbelievable. I absolutely Love being a wife and a mommy.

My life is full of diapers and feedings and hugs and kisses. My back is sore most of the time and, despite exercising 1-2 hours a day, I can't lose the 12lbs to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight. My life is a joy to live.

I think what I consider to be interesting thoughts throughout the day. I used to post them to facebook but have become increasingly uncomfortable with the information privacy issues surrounding the social networking site.

Side note: M&M's new add campaign is to have viewers vote on their favorite M&M color, and I think it would be funny if it became a veritable political election with Republicans voting Red, Democrats voting Blue, and Environmentalists voting Green.

I'm finding myself close off a little. I'm not interested in being as open and/or vulnerable as I used to be. I write a lot of things and then delete them, either because you don't want to know or because I don't want to tell you.

I called Mars candy company today. I told the customer service rep that I adore Dove chocolates, but I hate the new "promises." Dove Dark Chocolate Promises used to have awesome, womanly statements like "You look good in red." Now they say stupid things like "Always follow your heart, it is never wrong." Are you kidding me?? As I said to the rep- "So if I'm into your husband, I should go for that?" Airheads. The rep was wonderful and I felt better after having called- I've been meaning to do that since July.

It's sleepy time now. In case you've forgotten, I absolutely adore my husband and my son!!

Yay! :) Talking with you on the phone made me realize how happy I was too ;-) So we definitely need to keep that up! I had a smile on the entire time.

I can't imagine how happy I will be when I'm a mother as well. You have me excited for that future possibility.

What you wrote about the "non obligation" side of things is so entirely true. I am more concerned that I am involved with things I'm passionate about than about the money-- because we will always experience incredible joy & fulfillment from such a choice. What freedom!

Have a blessed weekend enjoying your family :)
